What Are Postnuptial Agreements?

Postnuptial agreements work similarly to prenuptial agreements, with one exception: The couple signs the agreement after the marriage, rather than before. Like a prenup, a postnuptial agreement may cover points that usually arise during divorce, like the division of assets or debts, child custody, and child or spousal support.

Every couple can benefit from a postnuptial agreement, but signing a postnup is especially advisable if:

  • You have a business or intellectual assets (like books or art) that you want to keep as separate property
  • You have a complex family structure that involves children from prior relationships
  • You are expecting an inheritance, a settlement, or another substantial addition to your assets
  • You or your spouse have significant personal wealth and/or high debts
  • There is conflict and tension in your marriage, although you may not currently plan to file for divorce

Are Postnuptial Agreements Enforceable?

A postnuptial agreement is a legally binding contract. However, just like with prenups, certain conditions may render a postnup invalid. To be enforceable in Maryland, a postnuptial agreement must:

  • Be fair to both spouses and not leave one spouse without reasonable financial support
  • Protect the interests of minor children (e.g., waiving the right to child support is usually unenforceable)
  • Be based on honest and full disclosure of both spouses’ finances
  • Involve no coercion, intimidation, or other undue influence that may induce one spouse to sign the agreement involuntarily
